Fingal hurlers will play Louth in the Nicky Rackard Cup quarter-final in Fingallian’s Pitch, Swords at 3.30pm on Saturday. Emmet McCabe and Peter Daly are rewarded for their significant contributions when coming off the bench in last week’s “extra time” win against Monaghan by being named in the first fifteen.. Goalkeeper, Willie Burke, will undergo a late fitness test on the injured hand that kept him out of the last game. Hilary Murray Hession is a ready replacement, as he did ably last week. Dublin hurling supporters are urged to attend the game and support the Fingal team.
The reward for the winner is a trip to Ruislip the following week to take on favourites London in the semi-final.
